In this comparison, we will contrast three top fitness business software platforms: Exercise.com, Vagaro, and Zen Planner. While Zen Planner and Vagaro have some strengths that might pique a manager’s interest, they do not provide the comprehensive platform seen with Exercise.com.

Let’s jump into a brief Vagaro software vs. Zen Planner software comparison and see how they stack up against Exercise.com.

Workout Software: Vagaro vs. Zen Planner

Workout software is crucial to running a successful, professional fitness business. It keeps trainers productive, clients accountable, and produces better fitness results. Unfortunately, Vagaro doesn’t offer any workout software. Using Vagaro as a management software immediately sets you behind other competing gyms.

While Zen Planner does offer workout software, it is inefficient and frustrating for trainers to use because it doesn’t include an exercise library. But with the Exercise.com software, you get a professional workout creator/logger that includes an exercise library and allows you to merge with your own YouTube or Vimeo accounts. Using our workout app, trainers easily create personalized workouts and clients can perform these workouts anytime, anywhere.

E-Commerce Software: Vagaro vs. Zen Planner

E-commerce is an excellent way to expand the reach of your business to local (and global!) customers, creatively engage your current members, and grow your revenue. However, both Zen Planner and Vagaro are severely limited in their e-commerce options. Zen Planner only offers a POS and inventory tracking, and Vagaro only offers an online store. This doesn’t compare to the countless e-commerce opportunities the Exercise.com software provides.

With Exercise.com software, you can do just about anything through e-commerce. Sell single workout plans, group workout memberships, online workout memberships, workout of the day subscriptions, workout challenges, and more.

Assessment Software: Vagaro vs. Zen Planner

Neither Zen Planner nor Vagaro provides performance assessments with their software. But with Exercise.com software, you can easily track standard and custom measurements and assessments so clients can see their progress and trainers can adjust their program as needed. Plus, our assessments are automatically sent to clients to be conveniently stored in your custom app.
